Bonding time: Kate Ritchie, 43, takes her daughter Mae, seven, to a nail salon in Sydney

She’s newly single following her split from boyfriend John Bell.

Kate Ritchie, a former star of Home and Away, spent Thursday bonding with her seven-year-old daughter Mae.


For a pampering session, the two went to a manicure parlor in Randwick, Sydney.

The 43-year-old Nova FM radio host wore a leopard-print dress and slides and carried her possessions in a large tote.

Her lookalike daughter wore an off-white T-shirt and a maxi skirt.

Kate divorced from cyber security expert John, 25, last Tuesday, according to the Daily Mail Australia, following a whirlwind courtship of less than a year.

‘Kate is single. Lockdown is to blame,’ a source said.

‘Despite the fact that Victoria’s borders opened just a few weeks ago, Kate and John haven’t seen one other since January. She hasn’t expressed any desire to see him.’

The pair were last seen together in January during a PDA-filled holiday in Byron Bay.

They allegedly slept at an Airbnb and spent the majority of their time lounging in their private mineral salt pool and eating at the town’s best eateries.

While nothing is known about John, newly discovered court records reveal that he had a small run-in with the law in the past.

He was charged with careless driving in March 2015 but was not convicted.

John started the security solutions business VIREOSS in September 2019.


He runs the company from the small town of Seymour, an hour and a half from Melbourne.

Kate was previously married to retired NRL player Stuart Webb, with whom she shares daughter Mae.
